Lawmakers Attempt To Ban 3D Printed Guns On National Security Grounds

Lawmakers Attempt To Ban 3D Printed Guns On National Security Grounds

The Undetectable Firearms Act was passed in 1988 and updated in 1998 and again in 2003. The Act demands that all plastic firearms have enough metal components to trigger a metal detector.

The Act expires at midnight on December 9th 2013.

Lawmakers are seeking to make plastic 3D printed weapons a listed national security threat, which opens the door for legislation and control of such weapons.

ATF is out with a 'new' video PR-exploiting, in prep for

the Undetectable Firearms Act's December 9, 2013 expiration, to push their new bill 'outlawing' all 3D-printed guns by the citizenry. of course, in particular, against Cody's designs; cross posted:

Reminds me of a movie

I'm surprised that congress didn't aggessively update this law when the movie "In the Line of Fire" came out. John Malkovich had a wicked plastic gun in that movie...

thanks. yeah, the lies are so laughably blatant: ABS-made receiver, for a full auto gun?

LOLOLOLOLLL!

Well, to be fair, technically you can: if you want to lug around a gun with a receiver/frame's structural wall that's as thick as two cinder blocks...on BOTH sides! Yup: a real 'hand cannon' xD

seriously, that kind of utterly physics-imbecilic, delusional nonsense only works on hoplophobic Brandy Bunch, aka. the pro-rapists & murderer lobbyists, HuffPost readers and morons (well...same difference). Though: then again, we're a nation awash in zombified sheeple. Doh! never mind .o(

LOL!!! er... .o/

but, gotta love YouTube! If anyone's interested, you too can make the same John Malkovich's prop-gun from the film, "In the Line of Fire"; hey, we don't see the ATF terrorists coming after this guy...yet:

Resin prop replica of the composite gun made by John Malkovich (Mitch Leary) in the movie, In the Line of Fire. Leary creates this plastic gun to slip past security into a re-election campaign dinner for the President of the United States. Malkovich faces off against the Secret Service agent assigned to protect the president, Frank Horrigan (Clint Eastwood). When at the hotel where the President is staying, Leary assembles the weapon under the party table, and had previously hidden the ammunition in a rabbit's foot keychain, and the springs in a pen. The gun is a double barrel, single action weapon, and has working trigger action (does not fire rounds). Each barrel is manually cocked by the levers at the top of the weapon, and the gun also disassembles into several sections.

How the trigger action works:
Just like in the movie, the firing pin is pulled back by the dowel, then the dowel is pressed down to lock the firing pin. When the trigger is pulled, it pushes up on the dowel until the dowel becomes free, allowing the spring to push the pin forward.

Film Description: Clint Eastwood delivers one of his finest performances, as a secret service agent haunted by his past in Wolfgang Petersen's taut thriller In the Line of Fire. Eastwood plays Frank Horrigan, a secret service agent who keeps thinking back to November 22, 1963, when, as an agent hand-picked by President Kennedy, he became one of the few agents to have lost a president to an assassin. Decades later, psychotic Mitch Leary (John Malkovich) is stalking another president (Jim Curley) running for re-election. He has spent long hours studying the psyche of Frank Horrigan, and he taunts Horrigan (feeling that there is a bond between them), telling him of his plans to kill the president. After his conversation with Leary, Horrigan makes sure he is assigned to presidential protection duty. Horrigan has no intention of failing his president this time around, and he is more than willing to take a bullet. But everything goes Leary's way -- he is smart and cagey and the president's aides refuse to alter the itinerary. As the election draws closer, Horrigan's chances to catch Leary look to be less and less a possibility, and he begins to doubt his own abilities -- both now and in the past, when Kennedy was murdered.

It's always about national security.

Every time the government has wanted to abridge our liberties, it always comes from the angle of "national security" because it's the easiest lie to sell to the vast majority of zombies who show up at the polls. I think Family Guy had it right on this one:

Quite frankly, I agree with whatever it is you just said.
